Holly Jolly Christmas Collection by Echo Park

I had a great time playing with the Holly Jolly Christmas line by Echo Park. The colors are so vivid and playful, plus the patterns aren't all Christmas so while you can use them for Holiday projects and layouts you can also use them for other projects not related to Christmas.

On this layout I used the Sew Easy large paper piercer and fancy floss to stitch the fun swirly border then cut out the stockings and attached them with dimensional dots.

For the Christmas tree card I used an EK Success border punch then curled the paper up using the shaft of a pen to give it more dimension.  For the reindeer card I cut out the scalloped circle using Nestabilities dies. I love those things!  I added a jewel to the reindeer's nose and colored it using a Copic marker.

This card is pretty simple. I used my border punch again then raised the two pieces of paper with dimensional dots. I also added a little stickles to the snowman for some bling.

The last project I did was to make some fun ornaments. On the back of each ornament I attached a small B&W photo.

As always, these samples can be seen in person at Paper Pals. I hope you have as much fun with this line as I did!
Pin It!

So happy to see your projects. I bought this paper for my December Daily so you have given me some great ideas. I love the ornament idea.

Wow, Amber.... look at ALL that texture in your projects! Most impressive. No flat paper layouts for you. Impressive.
I too love your cards and your ornaments. Echo Park is one of my favorite manufacturers, I gotta get some of this line!
